Huawei teases long battery life for the Huawei Mate 9 in a new T.V. ad

Thanks to a new television commercial (or video teaser if you prefer) we now know that Huawei has something special planned for the battery life on the upcoming Huawei Mate 9 phablet. The beginning of the video shows a smartphone battery icon with one red bar, the universal sign of  impending battery death, with a question posed. "Do you hate this too?," asks the video.

The spot than captures comments from smartphone users that we can all relate to. "You know the moment when your battery jumps from 40% to 21% and then it turns off all of a sudden?," asks one perturbed phone owner. A female phone owner says that when her phone runs out of battery, she is lost. Another says that recharging takes too long.

In the last couple of years, we have seen manufacturers add rapid recharging systems that fill up a huge percentage of a battery quickly. Certain new features extend battery life by shutting down background activity on certain apps. But with the explosions taking place on the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 possibly battery related, some smartphone owners are worried about companies messing around with these power packs in an attempt to squeeze as much life as possible out of each full charge.

Check out the ad by clicking on the video at the top of the story, and tell us what you think Huawei has up its sleeve pertaining to the battery on the Mate 9. The phone is expected to be unveiled on November 3rd.
